. although the u.s. senate acted last month on sandy relief, it has taken john boehner's republican-controlled house 78 days since the storm to pass this bill responding to the storm. in the end, on the republican side, it ended up being a grudging vote for sandy relief. republicans voted against sandy relief by a 3-1 margin. the bill was only able to pass because a minority of republicans joined with democrats to get it done in the house. even though the senate already passed its version of hurricane sandy relief last year, last month, the senate bill has to be redone because it took the house so long to get their side of it done. the senate is expected to get their side done again shortly. and then the president says he will sign the measure into law. >>> and tonight, in further breaking news, as slow as house republicans were to act in response to hurricane sandy, tonight's other major news is about how fast new york state was able to move to respond to a different kind of disaster. tonight one month and one day after the mass shooting at sandy hook elementary school in newtown,
quickly because time is running short. >> now, house speaker john boehner responded quickly saying house republicans will do the right thing. they will be responsible, they will meet america's obligations and make sure the government does not shut down. he tried to take that specter off the table. but this is a very tough fight that's getting more and more problematic, larry, because the president said he's going to break the habit of crisis-driven fiscal negotiations. if he's going to succeed in that, somebody is going to have to break and it may have to be soon because treasury secretary geithner said this afternoon we could hit the debt ceiling and exhaust all the extraordinary measures he's been taking as soon as one month from now. >> you know, john, 2010, 2011, the 2012 he negotiated. he voted against the debt ceiling i believe in 2006. why all of a sudden does he not want have to have negotiations? >> i think will's happened, larry, is that the president spent 2011 and 2012 with republicans squeezing him on his priorities, having opposed him during the first two years of his presi
after they pass this. >> we've been clear. we made public our offer to speaker boehner over a trillion dollar in additional spending cuts, 400 billion in entitlement savings. on top of the over trillion dollars we signed into law. so the barrier to progress here isn't our position of the president. we moved more than halfway which is a fair definition of compromise. and we are going to require more revenue. john boehner himself said, he thought there was $800 billion in revenue from closing loopholes. we dealt with the tax rate issue. now it's about loopholes and i think the country would be well served by tax and entitlement reform. >> both john boehner and republican leader mitch mcconnell said the revenue debate is over. no more taxes. are you saying that the president will only sign a budget deal if it includes new revenues? >> yes, it's got to be balanced. they weren't saying that a matter of weeks ago. speaker boehner said 800 billion from closing loopholes. what's changed in the last four weeks? nothing. there's plenty of loopholes whether shipping jobs overseas who get preferen
be -- and i'm quoting speaker boehner now -- "a financial disaster, not only for us, but for the worldwide economy." so we've got to pay our bills. and republicans in congress have two choices here: they can act responsibly, and pay america's bills, or they can act irresponsibly, and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. the financial well-being of the american people is not leverage to be used. the full faith and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. and they better choose quickly, because time is running short. the last time republicans in congress even flirted with this idea, our aaa credit rating was downgraded for the first time in our history, our businesses created the fewest jobs of any month in nearly the past three years, and, ironically, the whole fiasco actually added to the deficit. so it shouldn't be surprising, given all this talk, that the american people think washington is hurting, rather than helping, the country at the moment. they see their representa

, is not going to jump to take any specific action. speaker boehner's office says they're going to wait and see, what does the senate do and then consider it. so that's sort of a real signal that there won't be any action on the house side. so if you look at senate democrats, what are they prepared to do? and from talking to people what we expect is over the next couple of weeks, it won't be instantaneous. they're going to meet as a group and try to make a big decision about should this be a comprehensive package, the kind of sweeping sort of discussion the president put forward, or should they try to take pieces? and i think there will be a lot of pressure to look at it in terms of taking pieces, going one step at a time. and the thing that seems to come up most often, we're beginning to see consensus around that universal background checks idea that you were talking about, that there are republicans who will support that, there are democrats who are known to be in sort of the gun community, willing to look at that. and then when you consider things like how can they address funding for mental

yesterday, house speaker john boehner responded with this statement -- " what are your thoughts on this? if the debt ceiling negotiable. some quick comments -- remember, you can post your comments on twitter. the first phone call is from maryland, a democratic caller, jill. caller: i don't believe the debt ceiling is negotiable. it is kind of ridiculous that the money is already owed, so why are we not going to pay what is owed to other people? if people have made investments, the bills have to be paid. i find it ridiculous that people in congress don't want to pay what is already owed. it does not make sense. host: here is the wall street journal this morning. caller: well, if you're asking me if that's true, i think there definitely needs to be somewhat of a compromise as far as spending cuts, but that is not an easy issue, because spending cuts mean job losses. it's not an easy thing to say a president will say we will stop paying the bills too. so there has to be compromised rehab the debt ceiling and some degree of trimming the fat, but i don't know how that is going to happen with
